A verjr nandsome species, peculiar to the dry climates of the "Western Himalaya,
Tibet, and Afghanistan. The whole plant is covered with a minute glandular pubes-
cence; but this is .only visible with a lens in Strachey and Wintcrbottom's Gugc
specimens, which have more glaucous racemes. Small states have simple, scape-like,
leafless stems, a span high, whilst typical ones have tall branching stems. It is very
nearly allied to C. Gortsc&akovii, of which it may be a form, but in that plant the
bracts are pinnatisect, and it is never glandular,
Boiasicr's C. QriffiMisii we have referred to this, though it is cot the n. 1419 of
Griffith in Leman's Herbarium; the name would claim priority (that of Mootaqftiaita
not being published) were we certain of the identity, but no (illusion ifi made by Bois-
sier to the glandular pubescence, which is evideut in Griffith's specimens, and the
name should further have been Grijpthii
